New Yorker Spills the Beans on the Next OS X Release

Writing for The New Yorker with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Greg Tannen channels what Apple’s release note writers really want to say in a joke piece about the upcoming OS X Haleakalā. (“No, don’t bother trying to spell it. It took us three tries, and we made the damn thing. Anyway, Haleakalā National Park is in Hawaii, which we thought was cool, and we’re doing this whole national-parks name thing . . . so, well, there you go. Haleakalā!”) Go read the full article, but not right now if it would be inappropriate to find yourself giggling in public.favicon follow link

Enough with the left coast, Apple! As a lifetime New Englander, I'm looking forward to OS X 10.13 'Jerimoth Hill', to be named for the highest point in Rhode Island.

Actually, Apple is only using geographic sites in California. Though I STILL don't know why they rejected Weed! ;)
